Welcome to Canada – Abde, Jala and Rangin (L to R),

The Sidi family arrived in Calgary on December 2, 2021.  A small group of Bow Valley family met them at the airport with banners, cheers, and waves.  Tears of joy were shared, though hugs were deferred because of COVID.

They have been experiencing many new things in Canada – new climate, new foods, new worship, new friendships.  Attending to legal requirements has consumed many hours.  But they have also had time for fun activities getting to know their new home, Calgary.

Continue to pray for their adjustment to life in Canada.

Rangin, Abde & Jala (girl)

They’re coming!!

The Canadian government has approved their application for immigration to Canada. Details of their arrival are not yet known.

They are a Kurdish Christian family originally from Aleppo in Syria. They fled war and persecution because of their faith in Jesus Christ.  Amidst the war, ISIS terrorists were specifically targeting Christians.

Abde lost his job in broadcasting because he talked openly about Jesus on the radio.
